Abstract
The skills to solve large unstructured problems in industry are critical to the success of many projects faced by practicing statisticians. Often these skills are learned on the job informally through observing experienced statisticians or semi-formal through mentoring and coaching. Statistical engineering provides a theory, framework and process to codify the experience of practicing statisticians and provides a mechanism for improving the process over time. I will provide some real examples from industry of statistical engineering and challenge the academic community to enhance their statistics curriculum to include statistical engineering methods so their graduates can have greater impact as practicing statisticians.
